Looking at the damp ground and the trees with their ever-so-tiny buds forming I am feeling the energy of hope and renewal vibrating from all around me. Everything is brimming and ready to bust forth into life. I thought this would be the perfect time to bring up the subject of “Grounding”.
I’m sure many of you have heard this term thrown around a bit but what exactly does grounding mean? How do we know when and in which ways to exercise it? I would like to take some of the mystery out of this subject with an easy interpretation and some quick tips for getting the wonderful benefits out of your grounding practice.
Have you ever felt scattered, rushed, anxious, or panicky? Of course you have. Unfortunately for most of us these are not uncommon states. However, they are indicators letting us know it is time to “ground” our energy. I think of these states as energy gone willy-nilly, like a live wire. At times our energy accumulates in the “upper chakras” of our energy bodies which correlate with our minds and thought. When you feel as though you can’t get out of your head, this is the ideal time to practice grounding. Grounding pulls our energy downward, hence restoring our energy body’s natural balance and promoting emotional and physical well-being.
We are electrical beings and therefore making a connection to the earth helps our personal energy to operate more effectively, not unlike grounding electrical wires to prevent currents from becoming destructive. It is important to understand that grounding isn’t a practice to be used all of the time. If you are feeling lethargic and heavy in your energy you may actually be grounding too much. In which case, the key then is to stimulate or excite. If however, you are feeling about to blow a fuse here are a few quick ways you can ground your energy.
I hope you find these simple tips useful as you experience the massive amount of energy that this season brings. As the surge of new life takes hold remember the importance of grounding!
